Looks like the 50 Studebaker/ElCamino blend is almost factory.

That is one good looker, will all states allow a car without a front bumper?

Sorry, John. I like the 'glass portions of the kit, but an Elco has too many sharp edges. A later model vehicle with "jellybean" styling might work better, don't you think?

Without doubt, this is the most reasonably priced kits of this nature I have seen.

I own both a bullet and an El Camino. It's interesting that the Studemino kit is a frequent subject on the El Camino Owner's web forum. Most of those guys hate the look-- seems like Stude owners are more constructive...

It's rare to find anyone who is indifferent about either car (truck, whatever...!):D

I am sure the purists will cringe at this, but there are two different "Studeminos", including the one now on eBay, and a Ute featured on the website Bullet Nose Paradise.

This is the URL http://www.ctaz.com/~junge/
Look at the Phantoms section.

I also remember a post some time ago with a link to some picture of Studebaker Heaven. There was a bullet nose that had had the rear of the body replaced with a pick-up bed.

The advantage to the kit car is that it is a lot more replaceable than a nice restored Studebaker. I'd be less afraid to drive something like the kit car on a regular basis.
